Grafton Area of Major Change SPD 2017


Representation ID: 31953

Received: 01/11/2017

Respondent: NHS England


There are currently 8 main GP practices and 2 branch surgeries within a 1km radius of this Grafton Area site, which is located centrally within Cambridge city. These GP practices do not have capacity for development growth. Development on this site would likely give rise to a need for improvements to primary healthcare capacity, in line with Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP); a proportion of the cost of which would need to be met by the developer(s). The nature and scale of this will be calculated at the appropriate time, when proposals are more developed and formal planning applications are produced and submitted.

NHS England has identified shortfalls in capacity at existing premises covered by this SPD. Provision needs to be made within the SPD to address the impacts of development on health infrastructure and to ensure timely cost-effective delivery of necessary infrastructure improvements, in the interests of pursuing sustainable development.
